The unforgivable sin in government is allowing budgeted funds to go unspent. In leftist politics, it's telling the truth. The forces for state expansion are relentless. Entrenched interests will fight like bloodthirsty hyenas to keep the treasury taps open. And all the structural incentives support more spending. Against those forces, the only philosophy that stands any chance is libertarianism. But it will almost certainly never be embraced by the American public, unless we experience a financial meltdown far worse than any we've previously seen.
The hypocrisy of our congress is astonsihing. Our government has done everything the resolution condemns. If not for meddling, intervening, sanctioning, overthrowing, attacking, and invading other sovereign nations, we wouldn't have a foreign policy!
Congress is chocked full of opportunistic grandstanders. Hypocrisy and hubris are their essence. The President and his adminsitration are equally worthy of derision and scorn. The people running this government are wholly contemptible. That's why they're held in such low disregard by the citizenry. The only rational response is to limit their power wherever and whenever possible.
Lindsey Graham will be my VP nominee. And Bill Kristol is slated for press secretary.
Those all-powerful isolationists and libertarian whackjobs are at it again, huh?. Don't they understand that wanting to be left alone isn't a legitimate governing philosophy? The world would collapse into chaos if we weren't out there manipulating, bombing, scheming, maneuvering, handing out hundreds of billions, and attacking everywhere.
It's not news when the left lies, cheats, or steals. Or engages in sexism, racism, or homophobia. It's only news when someone on the right does it.

With the rigged two party system. it's not like we really get much of a choice. Like the kids on South Park when PETA forced them to vote on a new mascot because it was cruel to be named the Cows, the contest is often between a "Giant Do*che" and a "Tur& Sandwich". Either way - we lose.

Politicians don't care what the people want. They prove every day they're contemptuous of us. And why shouldn't they be? Consider the incumbent reelection rate, even in the current state of our government and the prospects for our future. As for the WSJ, and every other media outet, it's consumer beware. They all have a point of view. And I believe it's healthy for Americans to be extremely skeptical of all the "news" - in every context.
More Christians should go into the entertainment business. And make some worthwhile shows and movies. I'm sure there's a large untapped market for tasteful, intelligent programming out there somewhere (find somebody with more talent than Kirk Cameron). Maybe some of that 700 Club money, or some of the other long-dollar Christian ministry organizations would be willing to bankroll you.

Between the public school cartel, minimum wage, occupational licensing restrictions, the war on drigs, gun control, and the FICA hustle, government does a magnificent job keeping a brother down (three generations and counting!). And it does so with the full complicity of many black accomplices in politics and government - the real Uncle Toms.
